Ashley Swinnerton, Internship at Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Margaret Herrick Library, Summer 2010

During the course of her summer internship with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the MIAP intern, Ashley Swinnerton, learned to properly care for, store, and catalogue archival audio materials, including most formats of tape and disc recordings. She gained hands-on experience cleaning, housing, and processing real collection holdings at the Margaret Herrick Library, as well as exploring digitization, reformatting, and digital asset management standards. Additionally, the intern worked at the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study on the Academy’s extensive Oral History project, in an effort to preserve the rich stories behind and about these collections of moving image and sound artifacts.
